How to add foggies to my fogless 318is

Hi guys..

I am just wondering how to get parts for my fogless car.. (oem) at lower cost than the dealer - assuming I need a switch as well as fog's- etc (not sure what I need)

OR

Should I buy aftermarket fogs (not sure what kind) and what would I need..
So they fit in nicely.. and look great..

Please let me know..
thanks

Sold my 1995 BMW 318is 5spd Boston Green

I believe that all the cars are wired for fog lights, so all you need is the light, bracket and switch. You can make the switch for $5 and the foglights are $75 a piece for the Hella fog lights, or you can buy the OEM ones from bavauto (might be hella) for $195 (that was the price last I looked).

When I owned my 318ti it wasn't pre-wired. Also went to the stealer and said they didnt sell the wiring kit anymore : . Chances are you are prewired though.

I know bavauto has/had a set for $195 when I sourced them else where I found them $75 a piece.

This forum is kind of old, but I figure I'd give it a shot. My car came with the wires and switch for fogs. I just got new euro clear fogs with brackets, but I plug them in and they dont turn on? Also I have no clue how this bracket and lights go in. Any help and or pictures would be great!
